It was only released yesterday but already Justin Timberlake’s comeback single ‘Suit & Tie’ is set to break download records.
Now that’s what you call a comeback.
‘Suit & Tie’ is the first single from Justin Timberlake, 31, in six years and it is clear from its first day sales that the wait hasn’t put music buyers off.
Within its first day of release, the track has hit the top of both the UK and US itunes charts netting an impressive 400,000 downloads.

Good news for JT, bad news for Taylor Swift, 23, who is currently only just clinging on to her title of biggest sales week for a download.
Taylor managed to shift 416,000 copies of ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ back in October last year.
Don’t worry Taylor, we’re sure you can get a song out of this devastating news.
An overwhelmed Justin Timberlake took to Twitter to thank his fans for their support of the single.
He wrote: “So humbled by all of this. This day has been TOO crazy. I just have to say it one more time to all of you guys and gals... THANK YOU!!”
This isn’t the first time that Justin has broken download records either.
Back in 2006, the singer sold 250,000 copies of single ‘SexyBack’ in its first week of release.
Well if these first day sales are anything to go by, 2013 looks to be the year of Justin Timberlake.
